My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read another review which totally hit the nail on the head, if any book was to be made in to a film then it’s Mists of the Serengeti, a modern day Out of Africa. Leylah Attar excels in writing some of the most beautiful poetic books available, she is an amazing story teller, and whisks you to a land far away through the pages, as you day dream about Tanzania, the landscapes, the heat, culture, the trails and tribulations of an African country.
The story of Jack and Rodel is born out of loss and sorrow, they go through a journey together rich with emotion and deep empathy for each other. But among all the emotion there is light and humour, I chuckled through tears. This book many not be for everyone, but was a great pallet cleanser to my usual smut.
And that epilogue, beautiful…
